4. Discounts for disabled people
People who are severely mentally impaired aren’t included when working out Council Tax.
You also aren’t included if you’re a live-in carer looking after someone who isn’t your partner, spouse, or child under 18.
Disabled Band Reduction Scheme
You may be eligible for the scheme if you live in a larger property than you would need if you or another occupant weren’t disabled.
You’ll have to show that you’ve either:
- an extra bathroom, kitchen or other room that you need for the disabled person
- extra space inside the property for using a wheelchair
The property must be the main home of at least 1 disabled person. This can be an adult or a child - it doesn’t have to be the person responsible for paying the Council Tax.
Check if you qualify for the scheme.
